Ok...this really is a bit of a rant about a bunch of little nothing things, so bear with me...
I got called into work today. I'm not going to talk about it, but suffice to say that I was not really prepared to go in today as I had planned on working tomorrow. Now it seems both days are ruined. :( So, no love in the Wreck this Journal World...I was going to do some wrecking today. No reading (I bought a copy of "Julie and Julia" right before Mr. Kindle arrived...). No cleaning or laundry.
On the way to work the other day, I heard that they were having a Spa Expo at the Portland Expo Center...and they were talking about Swim Spas. I had never even heard of such a thing until about 6 or 8 months ago. The commercial has been on KPOJ non-stop for at least the last 4 days. Today, I was obsessing about it. "How nice would it be to come home at 9pm and climb into the spa/swim spa/hot tub? How expensive can that be?" Um...$20,000-40,000 is how expensive. So when they are yelling, "Close out!! 40-60% Off!!", what they really mean is, "It really doesn't matter how much of a sale we have because you won't be able to afford one anyway!". Disappointing.
On a positive note, I stopped by Powell's on the way home (I checked for a Kindle copy and it is not available) and picked up "The Artist's Way". I'm going to try it. I have been doing all these Arty things and really enjoying them. So, some more arty-ness, some more stuff to grow my life. This is a good thing. Very good.
So, no swim spa, no movie yet this weekend, but books are good. Kindle is good.
